My family and I enjoyed an afternoon here. My two youngest enjoyed the pony rides. The carousel was broken most of the day, when it was finally fixed, crowds overwhelmed it making it nearly impossible to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful but the employees are not very enthusiast, the teenage employees seemed bored and not approachable. The guy working on... More

This pioneer village has a small train and carousel to ride, as well as ponies. Then there is a schoolhouse, blacksmith, and potter that kids can check out and interact with. Property has a small home that one can tour to see how people lived in the 1800's, and there are a few animals to pet as well. Be sure... More

Its been here for a long time and you will love it. Mainly for younger children. I dont think I would take teenagers there without some small children. There is a water park nearby for the teenagers.

We have come here on multiple occasions, this time however, the carousel attendant who is named Nancy was quite a beast!! Never, have I experienced rudeness like her! She hollered at my 10 year old daughter and screamed to her, " can you read!!??"... I spoke with the manager Cori, who was delightful and sincerely apologetic. Besides the basketcase Nancy,... More

Took a trip to Blackberry farm with my school age niece and my mother, who is a senior. The park was clean, well run, and priced well within our budget. My niece said she had the best time ever, and this is a Disney savvy kid. She enjoyed the hay ride, train ride, merry go round, and fell in love... More

Great place to take younger kids to, we enjoyed every bit of our time here. We spent more time at the play ground. We rode the train, but would have liked to have more time to ride the paddle boat. The kids were amazed by the old time way of living and the amount of work the blacksmith had to... More

My family recently went to Blackberry Farm for the first time this weekend and we had an AMAZING time! Despite it being just minutes down the road, we had never before visited the park and I was so happy we decided to go this weekend once we arrived. Parking is abundant (free) and children under age 2 are free ($8... More

There was a lot to keep the kids busy.. It wasn't crowded so they could enjoy most of the attractions. They loved the hands on places and the restored house and museum.Benches were plentiful for me to sit on and watch them. Picnic tables to have lunch on. A merry-go-round was fun too. The best was the train ride, we... More

The polar express special was excellent. Lots of fun and great value at only $5 a person. We listened to the story narrated by a teacher in the school room, made some craft stuff in the carriage house, rode the train and a wagon ride, stopped off at the warming station for a quick warm up before heading to the...
